An effective Candida diet is a process by which Candida albicans cells are cleansed from the body.
You’ll never cleanse them if you keep feeding them.
While there some “grey area foods” that many debate on whether or not they cause yeast infections, there are some foods that never should be eaten.
These foods will always railroad your efforts to eliminate Candida overgrowth.
1. Refined Sugar
Nothing feeds yeast like refined sugars. They are absorbed quickly by the body and feed hungry yeast cells.
If you don’t give these up, yeast infection relief will be out of your grasp.
2. Refined Wheat Flour
While there’s some debate on the gluten issue, everyone agrees that products with white, refined flour are a no no.
Your saliva begins breaking these carbs down to sugars quickly and they spike your blood sugar levels.
3. Soda (Soft Drinks)
Besides the sugars or even the artificial sweeteners, soft drinks are full of acid, artificial flavors, and preservatives.
Get them out of your house if you want to cleanse Candida.
4. Fruit Juice
Fruit juice has as much sugar as a soda and quickly spikes blood sugar levels.
Just because it’s from fruit, it doesn’t mean it’s healthy.
5. Refined White Rice
This rice has been striped of it’s fiber and nutrition and all that’s left are carbs.
White rice’s carbs quickly are converted to simple sugars by the body.
6. Plain Milk
Milk is full of the sugar lactose, furthermore, many have some degree of lactose intolerance.
The sugar in milk, along with the hormones in milk make it not a good option.
7.Beer, Wine, and Liquors
These beverages are full of sugars and carbs. Not only do they feed Candida yeast, but they stress the liver.
The liver can’t deal with the toxins created by Candida die off if it’s too busy processing alcohol.
For some reason many think honey is a “safe sugar”.
Except for manuka honey, the evidence doesn’t support the notion that honey keeps its antimicrobial properties after harvest.
9. Processed Foods
This includes many frozen meals, powdered dry meals, soups, and crackers.
If there’s more than five or so ingredients, stay away.
10. Cakes and Pastries
I have yet to see a recipe for a truly safe cakes or pastries.
Even if they are sweetened with stevia and made with non-glutenous flour, they are still loaded with carbs and will feed Candida yeast cells.
Avoiding the above 10 foods will put you well on your way to being yeast infection free and are the basic forbidden foods on any good Candida diet meal plan.
